Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 cumulative updates for Anniversary and Creators Update users

Microsoft isn't wasting any time getting fixes out to everyone updating to the Windows 10 Creators Update today. A new cumulative update carrying build number 15063.138 is now rolling out to Windows 10 users, bringing along a couple of small fixes. Anyone not upgraded to the Creators Update isn't left out, however, as a batch of fixes is headed out with a separate cumulative update for Anniversary Update users as well.

Here's a look at what's new with each update.

Creators update (KB4015583 - build 15063.138 (opens in new tab)):

  • Addressed issues with updated time zone information.
  • Security updates to Scripting Engine, libjpeg image-processing library, Hyper-V, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Adobe Type Manager Font Driver, Internet Explorer, Graphics Component, Active Directory Federation Services, .NET Framework, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, Microsoft Edge and Windows OLE.

Anniversary Update (KB4015217 - builds 14393.1066 and 14393.1083 (opens in new tab)):

  • Addressed issue that was preventing the Camera application from saving a captured image when "Show recently opened items in Jump Lists on Start or the taskbar" settings is enabled.
  • Improved the Host Network Service (HNS) to support an overlay network driver for use on Windows Server 2016 to connect containers across hosts using Docker Engine in Swarm Mode.

  • Addressed issue where displays turn off unexpectedly even when Turn off display and Screen saver are disabled in the power profile.
  • Addressed an issue where CredentialGuard-enabled computers joined to Active Directory domains submit two bad logon attempts each time a bad password is provided during a Kerberos-based logon. Logons to Active Directory domains with arbitrarily low account lockout thresholds may be subject to unexpected account lockouts. For example, 2 logons with a bad password could result in an account being locked out if the account lockout threshold is set to 3 or 4.
  • Addressed issue that increases CPU usage when IP forwarding or weak host is enabled.

  • Addressed issue that was causing the Command prompt to be not displayed properly through the serial console on headless systems.
  • Addressed issue that was causing MDM enrollment failtures on devices using Kerberos authentication.
  • Addressed issue with rendering when a webpage contains a DIV element that has the contenteditable attribute.
  • Addressed issue that causes text to disappear when you resize an Internet Explorer window when the encoding is Hebrew and any text ends with an underscore character.
  • Addressed issue that was causing headless machines to not go into S3 sleep mode sometimes.
  • Enabled warning message in Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) to alert administrators of a design change that may prevent the processing of a User Group after installing security update MS16-072 (KB3163622).
  • Addressed an issue that was causing Windows Explorer to perform an endless, rapid refresh of a network drive that is mapped to a share, preventing users from performing tasks such as rename object.
  • Addressed a memory leak in Internet Explorer when hosting a page that contains nested framesets, which load cross-domain content.
  • Addressed an issue that was causing the print spooler service to hang instead of showing a timeout error when a connection between a bluetooth printer and the machine is lost during printing.
  • Addressed an issue that was preventing installation of a new printer driver that uses v3 printer drivers.
  • Improved the reliability of Load Balancing/Failover (LBFO) whenever there is a resource rebalance, a device failure, or a surprise removal of a device.
  • Addressed additional issues with updated time zone information, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Security updates to Scripting Engine, libjpeg image-processing library, Hyper-V, Win32k, Adobe Type Manager Font Driver, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Graphics component, Active Directory Federation Services, .NET Framework, Active Directory, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, Windows Kernel model drivers and Windows OLE.

  • Great News..! Now waiting for Mobile update too..
  • I'm currently setting up a brand new Asus ZenBook Flip 2in1 with the newest build of the creators update installed. Everything went fine including the automatic switching between Tablet and Desktop modes until just now. I set up the laptop in this chronology: 1. Installed x86 programs - Continuum is still working 2. Installed store applications - Continuum is still working 3. Went through all the setting pages one by one - Continuum stops working Under the Tablet mode setting page no matter which option I choose (switch automatically without asking, always ask etc.), I don't get any response. When I flip over the display, the machine stays in desktop mode. Changing over to tablet mode manually works as expected though. Thanks in advance for any advice. My guess currently is that this is a bug with the creators update itself but I don't know. Cheers
  • Next Tuesday patch will fix your os problems...
  • Haven't tried this one yet.
  • Now I have. Didn't work. It's Asus most likely.
  • The updates launched for both RS1 and RS2 on phones
  • Also launched on first and TH2.
  • Anyone figured out the "only 13 phones" getting the creators update is correct?
  • Only Microsoft branded phones and latest x3 and Alcatel will get creator update
  • But Lumia 535 is a Microsoft branded phone for example, but that one isn't on the list..
  • Yea 540 and 535 is missing maybe its a mistake
  • Could be, hope someone figures it out. Been talking to MS myself, got a pending answer :/
  • There is no such big difference in lumia 550 and 540. They will end support for nokia branded devices for sure
  • Why are you working yourself over this? Just get onto Insider Fast or Slow ring, install RS2, get out of Insider ring afterwards, done! It will be exactly like you are on Production. The only downside in the future is that you won't get RS3 without spoofing your phone.
  • It's not about getting the update. If it's correct i don't see the 950's being supported for long after the fall update. That's why i asked.
  • Installed RS2 on my "unsupported" 830 via Insider Fast Ring. Afterwards got out of Insider. Technically, I'm on Production now. Update .138 downloaded just fine.
  • Thank you, mobile update :D
  • this couldn't be any more confusing.. just a big mesh if you ask me
  • What exactly is confusing?
  • People who get confused should not be on insider. Stay on simple production.
  • Agree with you, don't understand why they don't push creators updates on some system running anniversary update, instead they give cumulative update first.
  • Fast ring for phone too got
  • Btw, mobile has an "April 2017" update available 15063
  • yep that 15063.138
  • The interesting thing about these "minor updates": are the extensive solutions in anniversary also in creators update? Or will we still encouter as many issues in the official creators update as is solved in anniverary?
  • Probably most of those fixes were already baked in to the Creators Update so it didn't need them. I think it's unlikely that there are many, if any at all, fixes in the AU or older not also in the CU. Microsoft's focus is on the newest version. The olders ones get the hand-me-downs and only in those cases where their technology is advanced enough to support them.
  • New production updates for me on 950XL and 1520
  • I just received release preview build 14393.1066 for my Lumia 735
  • Switch to Fast/Slow ring already while you still can to install the Creators Update.
  • I got the one in the article on my 735. I am on Release Preview. I hope my wife's ICON gets it too. This Creator's Update is probably the end of the line for the 735 and for me being with Verizon.
  • You know one thing that kills me about MS dumping their phones after a year or so is how my laptop circa 2005 that came with XP is running Creators Update just fine. Great really and it is 12 years old but MS cannot support a 2 yo phone. I mean, at least support updates for 4-5 years. I would understand if they refused to upgrade my laptop.
  • I think as long as specs are okay you can update/upgrade your PC/laptop all the way. With phones that's different, those are so to say, hardwired inside
  • Ooow, so that's the "Dutch Localization" update I just got on my phone
  • More importantly this also addresses the deadly malware Dridex which used Word docs to infect a victim's computer and snoop on banking logins. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-39563965
  • This update messed up my phone..urgh.. Some app have glitches and some may not even open... Lumia 540
  • Big jump from .14 build to .138
  • Well I thought .14 is a bigger number than .134
    according to math.
    But according to you this number has nothing to do with math as the number after the dot is not a fraction but a normal number........am I getting it right??
  • Yeah with the updating numbering, it is different.
  • Well, now I get it
    Thanks
  • There are two numbers: the one before the dot, and the one after it. It's like this: 15063.14. This means that's the 14th minor build compilation inside the major build version 15063. At least it used to be like this.
  • Thanks for the clarification
  • cool on my surface pro 4, I got the CU (cumulative update), the .1066 one, then, it received a confidendiality settings thingy by windows update. A popup asking to check privacy settings, and here we are, the CU (creators update) is being downloaded right now. So don't despair if you get a cumulative update, the creators update may be around the corner!
  • These are not new operating system updates...
  • Lumia 950 XL is now stuck at the Windows boot screen after restarting for the update. Anyone else having issues? I'm thinking of rebooting it but I don't want to mess any configuration it's doing in the background (if any). I'm on the production build of Win 10 Mobile. No insiders build for me.
  • Update: I just rebooted the phone and it's all good.  
  • Does my lumia 730 receive creators update?
  • nope
  • I have 730 & gone thru insider previw build for 01 year I got the creator update thru update advisor !!!
  • Just got 14393.1066 for my phone.
  • Just updated my 950XL Fast ring...works well so far. Still have to use my keyboard to enter pin (no pin pad) Windows Hello seems faster in recognizing me...
  • It hosed my desktop.  Fan runs all the time, from the time it's started until I shut it off.  It won't even hibernate now.
  • anytime a fix is realease i am happy
  • Why would anyone still be running the original release version or indeed 1511 version?
  • I noticed a few running problems with my notebook once I updated to CU.  Since the update patch, everything seems back to normal and fast.
  • Is .1066 build fixed issue of WhatsApp, Opera Mini, Asphalt 8 & some other apps games not opening ? Due to that I had to downgrade my phone is that issue fixed all apps & games are now opening ?
  • why we only got cumulative update 14393.1066 & not creators update 15063.138 for PC's or it just take some time to update ?
  • Yo tuve que reiniciar para instalar la actualización. Desde entonces no me funciona correctamente, en ocasiones, la pantalla tactil, y tengo que reiniciar. Y hay aplicaciones que no consigo que actualicen.
